Underwater Treadmill therapy provides a unique benefit to our patients. Walking in water challenges their sense of balance and coordination. The water provides resistance but also buoyancy, which supports the patient's weight. There's no substitute for pets with neurologic or orthopedic problems that make it challenging for them to walk or stand, never mind exercise. It's also great for older arthritic or overweight pets, or ones that just need more exercise.
We are excited to announce the installation of our underwater treadmill to further compliment our existing physical rehabilitation program for our patients.
